Here is the crew. With Moonbeam, back on its home dock in Marco Island. At last.
As noted, the trip was definitely not the"dream" sail the crew had hoped for between Oyster Bay and Marco. This time: detours on the ICW, headwinds, slow days and more.
And yet, with another hit in store. After passing under the Channel 5 Bridge in the Florida Keys on Wednesday afternoon, and with the boat headed north, fates continued to send troubles. This last leg to Marco proceeded against a cold front with 30K winds (on the nose, of course). Ugggh.
Arrived just before noon on Thursday at the Marco dock. The crew is happy to tie up the boat and step across to dockside.
